About Snowprint Studios

Snowprint Studios was founded in Stockholm in 2015 by a group of game developers with extensive experience from AAA and mobile, having worked on some of the most successful games in the world. In the beginning of 2017 a second studio was opened in Berlin. The Berlin studio has now grown to 10 team members and is in 2018 likely to grow with a few more carefully chosen individuals.

Snowprint’s mission is to create fantastic free to play mobile game experiences for the everyday gamer. The Stockholm studio is developing the company’s first game, while the Berlin studio today works autonomously on the company’s second game.

We have partnered with one of the world’s biggest publishers, but retain full autonomy and control over our games and the original IPs that we’ve just begun to grow.

We support diversity both in the universes we create and in the workplace. We of course offer competitive compensation, including a stock option program.
